" I feel you are using that label because it expresses distaste/cheesiness "

Bingo.

And on second thought. Neil Diamond was probably too kind. His songs are way more interesting and dynamic.

Well, as a musical antidote for the slow-moving harmonies of Days Between, I will offer a musical contrast which should provide some relief:

Thankfully the realm of music is broad enough to contain such diverse forms of expression.

If you're looking for a more precise analog for Days Between, I'd say it sounds more like a Moody Blues B-side.

Hmm, I don't really know any Moody Blues other than one song, "Legend of a Mind". I think that's a pretty good song though, and actually does seem to fit with the musical universe of Days Between. I guess that comparison sounds like it might have something to it.

I did say Moody Blues B-side. Days Between ain't no Nights in White Satin.
